* UnexpectedPositive: Mary must undergo a physical before she leaves for basketball camp that summer. The doctor ropes Annie into having one too, and this is how she finds out she's pregnant with the twins. (But not before an episode-long assumption that ''Mary'' is the pregnant one due to the doctor mixing up their results.)

* AbsenteeActor: Most of them - Stephen Collins and Beverley Mitchell are the only cast members to appear in every single episode, while Catherine Hicks and Mackenzie Rosman are both only absent for a handful of episodes, and these were only in the final season. Jessica Biel appears very rarely after season 6, David Gallagher started making only occasional appearances in seasons 8, and 9, returning full time for season 10, and not appearing at all in season 11, and Barry Watson only appeared in a handful of episodes from seasons 7-10, while joining Jessica and David in not appearing at all in the final season.

* TheAlcoholic: Eric's sister Julie, when first seen. Eric helps her clean up, however, though not before an episode in which she dries out at the Camden house and somewhat traumatizes poor Matt when he refuses to get her a beer.



* ButtMonkey: Mary. Dear Lord, MARY. Apparently, it was not enough that [[spoiler: she gets hit by a car in the first season's two-part finale, injuring her knee]], but every time her basketball ambitions seem to be taking off, something happens to throw a wrench in the works. She's also portrayed as though basketball is the only thing holding her together, to the point that [[spoiler: when the girls' team vandalizes the gym, Mary is apparently so unable to cope with the aftermath that she ends up hanging out with a wild crowd, bouncing from one dead-end job to the next, and eventually being sent to Buffalo.]] Her relationships have a habit of going down the tubes, too, right up to [[spoiler: her husband Carlos, whom she almost immediately separates from. She gets back with him and they have twin girls, but her family is next to ignored for the rest of the PostScriptSeason.]] In general, Mary Camden seemed never to be allowed to be happy or successful at anything, possibly because of Creator/JessicaBiel rebelling against the show's clean image when posing topless for Gear Magazine.

* CastingGag: Stephen Collins and Catherine Hicks both starred in a [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek: TOS]] movie (''Film/StarTrekTheMotionPicture'' and ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'', respectively), and each had ample screentime with James Kirk himself, WilliamShatner.



* CharacterAsHimself: In this case, the ever suffering Happy the Dog...plays Happy the Dog. She got starring billing for his stirring role playing a common housedog, though her Emmy submissions always seemed to be rejected.

* {{Flanderization}}: Annie's overprotective/controlling attitude and nosiness, Lucy's clinginess and sensitivity, Ruthie's sneakiness, Simon's Wangst, Mary's flakiness…pretty much everyone over time, actually. But being a LongRunner will do that to you.

* TheHecateSisters: The first three episodes are about the life cycle. In the pilot, daughter Lucy is sensitive about starting her period and thus becoming a woman.

* HolidayVolunteering: Episode "Here Comes Santa Claus" each one of the kids had to do a good deed over the holiday season; Matt became a mall Santa, Mary volunteered at the soup-kitchen (and was happy that a hot boy was recruited alongside her) while Simon was determined to help Ruthie keep her faith in Santa.
